of japan to the cold war to the fall of communism, and continuing all the way to the obama administration. this is the trailer for the showtime mini series. >> history is exciting and i want to make it as exciting as a candy. we take a history subject to make not only dramatic, but we are compassionate. i always felt there was a disconnect about what is officially reported and what actually happened. this is the key to the whole series, find out how we got to where we are and who we are. it is great, great story. >> that was the trailer for the 10-part showtime series called, "the antal history of the united states." the first episode aired monday night and will let the air and the nights at 8:00 p.m., also available on demand. for more, oliver stone joins us and we're joined by peter kuznick his co-author peter. you've been working on this for years. why? >> from the 1940's, it was a big job, 4.5 years come off and on, i did three feature films and to documentary's during that time, but peter was on -- we started in 2008 and it has been 4.5. i recently discussed wallace and the bomb when
and three other americans. lawmakers are trying to sort out what the obama administration knew and understand why five days after the attack, u.n. ambassador susan rice was talking about a spontaneous protest. democrats who listened to petraeus testify were quick to defend rice. >> she used the unclassified talking points that were signed off on by the entire intelligence community. so criticisms of her are completely unwarranted. >> reporter: in both hearings friday, petraeus addressed his resignation because of an affair with his biographer paula broadwell. lawmakers said the former cia director apologized and assured them his personal situation had no bearing on the benghazi investigation. senator john mccain said general petraeus told him that he never spoke to the president about benghazi. he dealt with the director of national intelligence. on capitol hill, daniel nottingham. lesli, back to you. >>> and top national security officials were on capitol hill this week to deal with the fallout from the petraeus sex scandal. and defense secretary panetta has ordered a review o
it down to this point, was the obama administration incredibly incompetent or did they mislead congress, or did they just simply not know. probably it's a little bit of all three. >> let's turn to suzanne kelly. the fascinating thing again today was the senators allowed in to see this video, this closed circuit television video, that included very disturbing scenes of ambassador stevens' last moments. but also, it seemed to clarify, didn't it, exactly what was going on in the buildup to this attack. there was no obvious sign, according to the senators who have come out publicly after this, of any protest. >> yeah. that's what we've been hearing from people who are in those hearings, piers, and you know, it's interesting because nobody has seen this video yet. it's actually still classified. they're not even really officially supposed to be talking about classified information but i know there's a push to get at least some of this video released publicly. you have to remember, it's going to be a bit tricky because it is still classified and it is still part of the ongoing fbi investigati
. but the obama administration lined up with the israelis. state department spokesman mark toner said the u.s. believes israel has the right to defend itself. >> our position is clear that there's no justification for the violence that hamas and other terrorist organizations are employing against isrl. and the onus is on them to cease their rocket attacks so that this de-escalation can take place. >> suarez: earlier, i spoke with the israeli ambassador to the united states michael oren to discuss the latest developments. ambassador, what's the latest from tel aviv? where the strikes accurate? have missiles actually hit the city and is anyone snurt >> thankfully nobody was hurt. the rockets struck in the greater tel aviv area. the alarms went off. the sirens, prime minister netanyahu was in the city at the time to a bomb shelter and now this simply means that 4.5 million israelis-- over half the population of the state of israel-- has come under rocket fire from terrorists within gaza >> suarez: does this represent a significant of abilitys in the range of people who would shoot in israeli c
you think the election affected the timing of this. did hamas step up its attacks to test the obama administration? did netanyahu act waiting for romney to be elected and not seeing that. >> it's hard to know. i can't get quite in their heads. in that part of the world they're aware of the american political calendar, as everyone is, and there is a sort of freezing of decision making in this period leading up to an american election. let's face it, a president romney would have been a very different approach. >> and probably preferred by netanyahu. >> it's seen that way. paezble to that hamas is testing -- had waited to test until now. the truth is that the arab spring has many, many positive qualities for us in the west. the possibility that the people in that part of the world will be connected with their leadership. the elimination of the democracy deficit, all of those things. but one of the downsides to the arab spring is that we knew how to do business with many of these deck taters and autocrates, we knew how to conduct anti-iranian foreign policy to stop their nuclear develo
, now that we know we have an obama administration, is taxes on capital gains and dividends should certainly go up. it's not clear how much. and we've seen, as your previous guests pointed out, the dividend stocks go down. i actually think you want to be in something like the cyclical stocks. look, the odds that they're not going to come to an agreement at all throughout next year, to me, is very, very employee. >> are etfs the place to be considering the taxes? >> i think that's a good place to be. think about the odds. i mean, if you're the president and you want to get anything done in your term, you've got to get a deal at some point. otherwise, you're not going to do whatever else is on the agenda, like climate change. the republicans have already been chasing by defeat. they're on their heels. they're going to want a deal. they don't want to be portrayed as the group that tossed the economy into recession. there's a lot of work to do. >> are you selling anything before the end of the year in anticipation of those higher taxes? >> i think if you have a short investment horizon
of the obama administration's policies. >> okay. so this is part of the twilight zone narrative in which superstorm sandy or so-called presidential gifts to minorities in this case a benghazi cover-up conspiracy is to blame for republicans losing the election. now, this is not to say that there can't be questions about what happened in benghazi. four americans died, and we must prevent such a tragedy ever happening again. but to suggest the phrasing of the perpetrators as al qaeda or extremist elements amounts to a vast conspiracy is, frankly, ridiculous. just for recollection's sake, let's remember the very real consequences of the bush administration's actions on faulty intelligence regarding iraq and a guy called saddam hussein. >> we were told by no less a person by your own secretary of state that he had an active and ongoing program for acquiring and developing weapons of mass destruction. >> and i fully believe that all of the evidence on that is not yet in. >> yes, apparently ambassador bolton believes in intelligence can be quite fluid in some circumstances, up to four years lat
that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this is unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to the that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say yes they were bought off, that obama won the their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign ever big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victim who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant, and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying, hey, don't let t
on batterymaker a123. it's been a controversial company whose failure has been blamed, in part, on the obama administration. grassley releasing a statement just a few minutes ago saying that the very day that a123 filed for bankruptcy, the department of energy sent the company a check for nearly $1 million. grassley saying that this paints a disturbing picture. he says the department of energy is writing checks to a company literally as it is declaring bankruptcy. he's also saying that a private company and federal grant recipient has provided now more disclosure about its operations and assurances will intellectual property and national security than our own department of energy has provided. grassley saying he's gotten this information directly from a123. not the department of energy. this all plays into the controversial over whether the department of energy or federal government ought to be funding some of these alternative energy start-ups which have not had such a great track record. >> eamon javers, thank you. >>> welcome back to "power lunch." all this week on cnbc we have been focus

and the obama administration over susan rice. she went out on the sunday talk shows and got some of the information wrong about what happened in benghazi. president obama on wednesday strongly defended her in the wake of attacks from senators john mccain and lindsey graham. >> obama: if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and besmirch her reputation it is outrageous. >> this fight over benghazi is getting nasty peter ogborn. >> yeah, it is. it is. and sadly, it's becoming politicized because there may be a real issue there but who knows. there's so much noise from republicans, especially that we're clouding the issue. >> dan henning with the "full court press" this morning. dan? >> this is the "full court press." >> good morning, gentlemen. oth
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organize niced to take tunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem

a feeling, dr. hamburg, you are being picked on because you're part of the obama administration, and republicans have been picking on obama for four years. and usually their mantra goes jobs, destroying regulation, let industry police itself, we don't want government involved. now they are saying we want more government involvement. and i think they are right. with one appropriate government involvement to stop these things from happening. so, you would think that our obligation would be to figure out, he had the authority? i respect that chairman greatly but i've never understood him to be a great legal scholar. seems to be there's some ambiguity. if there's an ambiguity it's our job to clear it up. you think there's an ambiguity because the law we drafted in 1997 said one thing and the court came in and said something else. you don't know what you can add, what do you can't act. if want to make you act in the future, other than just to beat you up do not i can, we got to make sure you have all of the authority appropriate to act. courts have thrown out part of that 1997 law. t

, a conflict with initial reports from the obama administration. >> general petraeus' testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, terrorist-involved from the start. i told him my questions, i had a different recollection of that, the overwhelming amount of evidence is that it was it arose out of a spontaneous demonstration and was not a terrorist attack. >> so it was u.n. ambassador susan rice who initially said the attack was a spontaneous reaction to the anti-muslim film posted online. she was defended. today, by senator dianne feinstein. >> what susan rice, ambassador rice did, was use talking points, put out originally by the cia, signed off by the intelligence community, and those talking points, as i understand it, were requested by the house committee, and all the intelligence community signed off on it. the key is that they were unclfrunclfr unclassified talking points at a very early stage. >> general mark kemet is in washington. thank you for joining us. the decision here seems to be between classified and unclassified information
